Cherrapunji with the historic name Sohra being more commonly used, and can also be spelled Cherrapunjee or Cherrapunji) is a subdivisional town in the East Khasi Hills district in the Indian state of Meghalaya. It is the traditional capital of aNongkhlaw hima (Khasi tribal chieftainship constituting a petty state), both known as Sohra or Churra. Cherrapunji has oft been credited as being the wettest place on Earth, but for now nearby Mawsynram currently holds that distinction. Cherrapunji still holds the all-time record for the most rainfall in a calendar month and in a year, however: it received 9,300 millimetres (370 in; 30.5 ft) in July 1861 and 26,461 millimetres (1,041.8 in; 86.814 ft) between 1 August 1860 and 31 July 1861. Cherrapunji is located at WikiMiniAtlas25.30°N 91.70°E. It has an average elevation of 1,484 metres (4,869 ft) and sits on a plateau in the southern part of the Khasi Hills, facing the plains of Bangladesh. The plateau rises 600 meters above the surrounding valleys. Soils on the plateau are poor owing to deforestation and washout caused by heavy rainfall. Owing to winter droughts, the vegetation in this location is even xerophytic in spite of the fame of Cherrapunji as an extremely wet place. Additional pressure on local ecosystems is created by the rapid increase of the population — from a Sohra-area population of 7,000 in 1960, it grew to over 100,000 by 2000. Valleys around Cherrapunji, however, are covered with lush and very diverse vegetation, containing numerous endemic species of plants, including Meghalaya subtropical forests. Although there is heavy rainfall in Cherrapunji, there is a high scarcity of clean water. Cherrapunji holds two Guinness world records for receiving the maximum amount of rainfall in a single year: 26,471 millimeters (1,042.2 in) of rainfall between August 1860 and July 1861 and for receiving the maximum amount of rainfall in a single month: 9,300 millimeters (370 in) in July 1861.

Hello Everyone, This is my last vlog in the Meghalaya series. Nongriat is a small village close to Cherrapunji, it is inaccessible by roads, you need to climb down approx 3000 steps to reach this place. There are various trek routes from this place, one can also trek to the base of Nokhalikhai waterfalls. Another trek to not miss is the Rainbow Falls. Someone said "The best views come after the hardest climb", because of the extensive climb not many visit this village and hence the village is a hut of solitude, basket of natural beauty and a place to simply get lost. By far Nongriat has been my favourite place, and if I ever visit back (which I will) I would spend my maximum time here. I suggest that one should stay two nights here, as 1 night is less to absorb the slow travel essence this place emanates. Enjoy the video, like share and subscribe to my channel.
